What They Needed
The Chancellor’s office needed a statewide system that would streamline their annual grant issuance, review, and fulfillment process while offering data insights that enabled the state to align college programmatic offerings with local workforce development needs.
The solution needed to be accessible, transparent, robust, and scalable as college enrollments fluctuated and additional funding programs were added. It was critical that the State Chancellor be able to direct and re-direct scarce resources to programs that maximize the investments being made.
The solution was clear but getting there was anything but. The story of NOVA is not a technology story. It’s a people story. Transforming highly political and heavily siloed organizations is art more than science. Over the course of four years, productOps quietly built the underlying NOVA software platform one component at a time while never losing sight of the CCC's vision.
A Unified Platform
The end result is a unified platform that has been rapidly adopted system-wide. NOVA has maximized the state’s investments through more efficient and relevant program creation, better utilization of resources, and enhanced data management across the entire CCC system. All of this in a platform that is intuitive to operate and loved by the same people who were originally afraid that the platform would replace them. Instead, NOVA has freed them from mundane administrative tasks so they can better fulfill the CCC mission.
